Is a stool better than a chair? This is a common question that I get asked quite often from people who are suffering from acid reflux, GERD, or just generally bad breath. The short answer to this question is yes, they both are. The main difference between the two is that the stools are usually much softer and therefore easier to pass than the chairs. This however does not mean that the stools are better for you. It simply means that they are easier to get through your digestive system.
As much as I would like to tell you that the stool is better than the chair, the truth is that most people don’t really notice a difference. The difference in quality between the two will make a real difference though. A stool is much heavier and therefore harder to maneuver around and hold onto to. Also, when you sit down the stools typically end up back in your mouth and throat because of the pressure of holding them.
On the other hand, when you go to a chair the seat is much more firm, the cushions on the chair are much nicer, and the overall sitting experience is much nicer. It’s much nicer than having to push all day in order to move from one stool to another. You also don’t have to worry about spending half an hour pushing your butt in order to get to the bathroom.
So is a stool better than a chair? I’ll say that it depends. If you are sitting in a very uncomfortable chair, you may find that a stool is much more comfortable. The same applies if you are at the doctor. I would much rather be at home, where I can sit down and relax, rather than spending the entire day in bed, waiting to be seen. However, if you have to push a stool for any reason, a chair might be a better choice.
Another factor that would come into play would be the size of the stools. If you are dealing with a public restroom, you will find that there are many different sizes. This means that if you are dealing with smaller restrooms, you would probably do well with a smaller stool. The same goes for having to move a stool across a room, or even down the hall. If you want to be as mobile as possible, then get a really small stool.
Finally, and this is a personal preference, but if you like the way stools feel when you sit down, you may want to try one. Most people don’t like sitting down on hard wood surfaces, and therefore, they would probably prefer the texture and feel of a stool. The nice thing about the wood types is that they are very easy to clean. With a little bit of soap and water, you would probably be able to make your own nice smelling stool, and that is probably much better than a nice and fresh chair.
